My Favorite Turkey Brine

I posted this recipe last year when I did my Pre-Thanksgiving Thanksgiving post but this year I realized that I have made some adjustments to that recipe that I wanted to share with you.  Nothing too dramatic, just a few variations from my beloved Pioneer Woman's recipe.

Here it is dear readers

My Favorite Turkey Brine
as adapted from The Pioneer Woman

3 cups Apple Cider Vinegar
2 gallons Cold Water
4 Tablespoons Fresh Rosemary Leaves
5 cloves Garlic, Minced
1-1/2 cup Kosher Salt
2 cups Brown Sugar
3 Tablespoons Peppercorns
5 whole Bay Leaves
Three Large Oranges, quartered

Combine all ingredients in a large pot. Stir until salt and sugar dissolve. 
Bring to a boil, then turn off heat and cover.
Allow to cool completely, then pour into a large brining bag or pot. Place uncooked turkey in brine solution, then refrigerate for 16 to 24 hours.
Pin It!
